They began off the season with a 3-22 report, and at 23-46, they’re nonetheless among the many worst groups in baseball.
However their points go effectively past outcomes.

“I’ve been within the dugout of virtually each MLB workforce at this level and the one factor I can say is persistently true of the great ones is that they’re are loud and hype one another up (they sound like they’re having enjoyable). I’ve by no means seen the Reds dugout like that,” he wrote.

When he says he has by no means seen the Reds dugout having that type of enjoyable, one has to suppose that the issue begins on the entrance workplace stage.
Every part Begins At The High
If followers turned towards the Castellinis (Bob and Phil, house owners of the workforce) in the beginning of the season, one has to marvel if gamers did too, and when precisely.
They aren’t precisely mannequin house owners, and it’s as much as the folks on the high to arrange working surroundings.
It’s evident that dropping will vastly have an effect on the temper of a clubhouse, however even when they’re profitable, the Reds simply don’t appear to have enjoyable and benefit from the recreation.
Greene stated in a subsequent tweet (within the replies) that final 12 months’s workforce, which had Nick Castellanos, Jesse Winker, and others, was “extra enjoyable to look at, however the vibe within the dugout wasn’t a lot totally different. The Dodgers now, and the Cubs after they have been good, sound like just a little league workforce having enjoyable. Reds have all the time gave the impression of a bunch of dudes at work.”
That’s a tough evaluation of the present working surroundings within the Reds’ group.
